The big conventions are starting and we had a huge week of comics. The industry is in full swing and we have some amazing spoiler filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!
SUPERMAN #18 – Scott Keys
Since Rebirth started, Superman has been one of the best titles from DC. Issue 18 kicks off Superman Reborn, and it’s definitely piqued my interest! Can’t wait find out the truth behind the OTHER Clark Kent!

ROYAL CITY #1 – Tom Barnett
Jeff Lemire does it again! Royal City is everything a fan of Lemire’s work could hope for. I love this panel because it feels like it represents the reader heading down the rabbit hole into the world of Royal City.
About Me: I’m Tom. Slightly addicted to comics, Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. I also try to spend some time behind the lens of my camera. Love Bronze Age comics and the Black Hole movie from Disney. Follow me @tphoto10
HAWKEYE #4 – James Kaplan
This is a really fun series. Writer Kelly Thompson and artists Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire (on colors) are doing great, fun, socially conscious work. This is a funny, emotional, ground-level comic that also has wacky comic book elements. Romero and Bellaire do wonderful, realistic art in the tradition of David Aja and other prior great artists on the Hawkeye book. It’s full of humor and personality and distinctive characters. Kate Bishop Hawkeye is a great character, and this is a great book.
About Me: James is a lawyer by day, and an avid reader of comics whenever he can. He loves his family, friends, and getting all of them into comics. He writes longer comics reviews at panelpatter.com and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk.
THE ONCE AND FUTURE QUEEN #1 – Jill Pennington
Girls, Tattoos and Fights! This mini-series is a fresh twist on the legend of King Arthur. A teenage girl has pulled the sword from the stone and a familiar cast of characters appear. Is time really like an onion?
About Me: I’m Jill; A first time contributor. I sell comics and books by day at Pieces & Pages and fill the rest of my time making my fiancé play boards games with me, reading and hugging my cats. If you’re nearby Livonia, MI stop into the store for a high-five or reach out online @PiecesAndPages.
SUPER POWERS #5 – Doug Zawisza
I will take Golden Pharaoh if it’s necessary to get Firestorm and Hawkman. Fun and adventure in Super Powers #5 from Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani! Aw yeah!!
About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity, an adjunct staff member of the Waiting for Doom podcast, and author of the Hawkman Companion from TwoMorrows. Twitter: @DZawisza
NAILBITER #30 – Kara Leavitt
What a perfect panel to end on! I absolutely love the ambiguous ending and the entire issue wrapped up the series neatly, finally giving us the explanations we’ve been waiting three years for. I’m really sad to see this book go, but I can’t imagine a better way to say goodbye to it.
About Me: Kara is a pre-vet sophomore at Tufts University. She loves reading comics in her spare time and frequenting her local movie theater. Follow her @karalea16
THE FLINTSTONES #9 – Aaron Meyers
Seriously, the best book DC is making right now. Cutting social commentary.
About Me: Aaron Meyers loves reading comics, collecting comics and talking about comics. He’s grateful to share his love of comics with all of his friends on the Internet. From Twitter at @aaronmeyers, to his new podcast, Comics Therapy with Andrea Shockling, it’s all about the love of comics. He also loves his family, especially his wife, Chrissy Meyers. And while you were taking the time to read this, Aaron went and bought all the best issues from your store’s dollar bin. You lose, Aaron wins. #AllTheComics
